Title : Transmission of IPv6 Packets over InfiniBand Networks
Author(s) : H. Chu
Filename : draft-hkchu-ipoib-ipv6oib-00.txt
Pages : 9
Date : 26-Jul-01
This document outlines all the necessary ingredients for running an
IPv6 network on top of an InfiniBand (IB) network. It first
describes how IP link segments can be constructed out of IB subnets
and partitions, then specifies the method of forming IPv6 statelessly
autoconfigured addresses, link-local addresses, and the link-layer
address format used in the Source/Target Link-layer Address option.
It then describes how an IPv6 packet can be encapsulated in an IB
packet, both unicast and multicast.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
